I've been doing a little research on Beretta as I think the Px4 Storm .40 sub-compact is going to be my next purchase. What did you think of the Storm .40 when you shot it, bajastx?

I liked it a lot. The one that I shot was the compact version with the 4” barrel not the sub-compact. It was very controllable even under rapid fire. It comes with two clips and three different back straps for different hand sizes. The one that I shot had the standard back strap which fit my hand well. I have shot a Glock 23 which is pretty comparable to the PX4 and I would much prefer the Beretta, plus the PX4 holds one more round in the clip than the Glocks.

Default Stöeger

I like the Cougar 8000, the older metal frame version of the PX4 Storm... Today Beretta still make the Cougar under the name of Stöeger Cougar, in their turkish factory.... i don't know if you in U.S. can find Stöeger firearms, but if you want a Beretta for less money go and get a Stöeger, their shotguns are superb, just like a Beretta (or Benelli) but without the price tag.

The 92FS is absolutely reliable (not one malfunction for me) and easy to maintain. If you're into concealed carry, it would be too big.

the only gripe i have is the decockers location on the slide.
so what do you like about berettas
what do you not like about berettas

Beretta fan here. I like the 92 & the 90-Two, but my favorite is the Cougar. It just feels right to me and unlike the new 92's, my Cougars have all their parts made of metal. (except wood grips)

I had a model 91fs, bulky, overweight and terribly inaccurate, gave it to my son. My model 950 .25 to me is just a curio and sits in the safe. On the other hand, my model 70 7.65 and my wife's model 84 .380 are a total joy and not for sale at any price or trade for anything

Call it one extreme to another.

I have a PX4 9mm compact and it is a great shooting gun. I sold my M&P 9mm so I could buy a 92FS brigadier inox.

I like Beretta quite a bit. An Italian 92FS was one of the first handguns I ever bought when I turned 21. I like the craftsmanship of that pistol, especially for the time it was made (1991). Lots of other autos were jam-o-matics. This 92 has been utterly reliable. It is accurate enough to have earned me a few trophies in pistol matches. It is pleasant to shoot.

I will say that it is a big gun for a 9mm. The slide makes it thick. The grip is fat. The double action trigger reach is long and the slide mounted safety is not super friendly. And yet I still like it. My wife's 85 is a fantastic .380, and I have a 21a that is a good little pocket gun.

I'm a pretty generous guy though, because I also like Glock, Sig 220 and 226, 1911A1s, and am liking my first M&P.

I have shot the 92 in different configurations.
I could live with it if need be.

But I would not purchase one.
The 92 does not offer anything that is not already covered in my battery of arms.
My H&K PSP P7 does a better job for concealment.
My Browning HP has a better trigger.
My 1911 in 9mm is easier for me to maintain.

Everyone has a different reason for owning a gun (or guns). I am slowly assembling a collection of 9mm to include the "most historically" important ones and the Beretta makes that list as the US military sidearm. It's oversized and overbuilt for the 9mm, but an easy shooter as long as your hands aren't too small.

(I have a Walther P38 for the same reason, & it suffers the same criticism plus it has the limited capacity of a single stack.)
